TOURNAMENTS

Through our tournaments, our students can apply new skills they've learned in our lessons and enjoy competing with their peers. We have weekly tournaments that all vary in time control, format, and eligibility to participate. Below are the two main types of tournaments we organize and steps on how to participate.
